Furneaux Lodge & Punga Cove

These fabulous lodges in Endeavour Inlet are ready and refreshed for summer, and looking forward to welcoming boaties and Queen Charlotte Track walkers this season.

With accommodation, restaurant, cafe and bar facilities available at both, they provide a great refreshment stop if you need to re-charge in between fishing and boating, or even just to stretch the legs and try some delicious Marlborough fare, including local seafood, wine and craft beer.

You do need to call ahead by phone or VHF to book a mooring, and overnight stays are available on the moorings for $25 per vessel.
